Back From DragonCon
Back home now and exhausted. As always Dragon Con was amazing! I had a great time talking to and meeting hundreds of new people and catching up with my old friends. One of the highlights was getting to meet and hang out with Mark Meer who does the Voice of Shepard in the Mass Effect Games. When I am more coherent I may post a more detailed rundown of the convention, but for now I need sleep and mass doses of vitamin C.
The Foam armor held up better than I could have ever hoped. We wore the armors for most of Saturday and Sunday, did a lot of walking, running, climbing stairs, posing for photos and partying in them. Admittedly, I was rather drunk for a good portion of this time and was not even trying to be careful in avoiding damage to the suit. By the end of the weekend it only needed to be touched up with a black sharpie in a few small places where paint had gotten scratched off. (mostly under the arms on the sides) I would have to say that it passed with flying colors.
If anyone has or finds photos or Video of the Shepard costumes please let me know. I was hoping to get a proper photo shoot done while at the con but unfortunately it didn’t happen. As regular attendees know it can be difficult to plan for much of anything as you never know what is going to happen next at Dragon Con.
Here is a few photos that Jane took of me in my completed N7 Armor. As I find more photos online I’ll try to link to them. You can also find more photos on my Facebook profile.
